My photographic notes about the four seasons in Kamakura or the gardens of Zen

Bamboo grove: Jochi-ji
A bamboo tree grows up rapidly at the speed of one joint per day in its full-scale growth period.
In the bright sun of May, the thin straight bodies and shiny green blades of bamboo trees give me the impression of esoteric life force, especially when the gentle wind keeps swaying them lightly to make a pleasant quiet sound.
